Flat Rate Pricing

Flat-rate pricing aims to eliminate some of the confusion surrounding interchange fees and gives you a simple, predictable set of rates that you’ll pay every time.

The primary advantage of flat-rate processing is that you’ll always know in advance exactly how much a given transaction will cost to process. Most flat rates include both a percentage and a fixed per-transaction fee.

Same Day Funding

Merchants accepting credit cards can now be funded by midnight of the same business day, rather than the usual 48-72 hour wait imposed by other processors.

The process is simple: the merchant just needs to batch out the terminal every day before the cut-off time (6:00 PM EST), and the funds will be available in their bank account by the next business day.*

*Not all accounts qualify for this funding program.

Cash Discount Program (Fee Elimination)

Cash Discount Program
(Fee Elimination)

Cash discounting works by giving a discount to your customers who choose to pay with cash instead of a credit or debit card. Customers who choose to pay with a credit card will pay the marked amount because the processing cost is built into the cost of the product. This allows the business owner to get the full payment from the customer and not incur any credit card processing fees.

With our program, you, the merchant, keep all of your sales profits by eliminating your credit and debit card processing fees by passing the fees onto the customer.

Integrate seamlessly with other eCommerce platforms!

With our dedicated service and support, you can plug into some of the biggest eCommerce platforms and shopping carts:

contactless processing

Contactless payment is a secure method for consumers to purchase products or services using a debit, credit, or smartcard—also known as a chip card—by using RFID technology or near-field communication (NFC).

To make a contactless payment, a consumer would simply tap their card near a point-of-sale terminal that is equipped with the contactless payment technology.

Contactless payment is also referred to as tap-and-go by some banks and retailers. Examples of non-credit or debit card contactless payments include transit cards, Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Google Wallet.

We can set your terminals up to accept these types of payments.

Since contactless payments do not require a signature or a personal identification number (PIN), transaction sizes on cards are limited. The allowable amount for a contactless transaction varies by country and by the bank.

Is It Time for a Financial Checkup?

Like most people, we go for a physical checkup once a year. We want to know if all is right with ourselves, and if not, what can we do to make ourselves better.

With that said, businesspeople should also do a financial checkup once a year.  

If you accept credit cards at your business, then you should know that the cost of accepting those cards can be reduced. Monies saved on processing fees fall to your bottom line.

We will prepare a statement analysis of your rates and fees that will provide a side-by-side comparison of all your rates and fees, in an easy-to-read, comparable format. 

This reliable and verifiable checkup is a confidential, no-obligation free service offered by 716 Merchant Services.

HOW IT WORKS: Send us your processing statement from the previous month (all pages, front-to-back) and cross out anything you may feel is confidential. We will get back to you with our statement analysis within 48 hours, showing you what your current processor's fees are and what your savings would be with us.
